Paver Pete's presentation

Paver Pete’s Presentation

The evening began with a cocktail hour followed by a spectacular meal by the great staff at Tudor Hall. The seats were packed with record attendance as we moved into a fun and interesting presentation by “Paver Pete” Sponsored by Techo-Bloc. After the presentation, Jim Holdcroft and Ian Rowbotham presented a custom “Paver Pete” Sens jersey.

Thank you, Jerry!

We then took the opportunity to thank last year’s presenter, Jerry Corush with a certificate for a hot air balloon flight as a token of our appreciation for his presentation in 2011, which was a great look at some of the re-development happening in Lansdowne Park.

After the thank-you’s, we moved on to one of the best parts of the evening: celebrating and recognizing young minds by presenting cheques for our bursary winners from Algonquin College, University of Guelph, and Kemptville College. Jim and Ian presented this year’s cheques to tomorrow’s budding commercial landscape contractors.
